Regardless of the kind of loan undertaken, legal issues are inherent. Briggs and Morgan attorneys consider the legal aspects of any loan arrangement as well as the business interests of our clients.
We represent state, regional and national lenders in all aspects of corporate and commercial lending. Briggs and Morgan attorneys provide legal counsel to banks, bank holding companies, banking associations, trust companies, insured companies, asset-based lenders, and other financial institutions involved in and structure and document commercial credit transactions.
We regularly work with the client to negotiate and prepare documents for commercial loans, asset-based loans, asset securitizations, commercial real estate lending, and acquisition finance and complex banking transactions. Many of the loan transactions in which we are involved are multi-million dollar in size.
Briggs and Morgan attorneys have extensive training in a wide range of commercial finance, regulatory and real estate issues. We advise lenders regarding regulatory and workout transactions, letters of credit facilities, acquisition and mezzanine financings, ESOP lending, floor plan and leasehold finance arrangements, commercial mortgage financing, and asset-based lending transactions.
Our commercial lending attorneys work closely with our bankruptcy and workout attorneys when clients face significant corporate reorganization and require debtor-in-possession and exit financings. Briggs and Morgan is able to provide legal advice concerning insolvency and collateral risks on new money transactions.
